The most comprehensive account of the story ever written -- The Daily Mail, August 2002
From the Back Cover
What secrets lie behind the controversial opening of Tutankhamun's tomb? Did the contents of papyri found in the tomb reveal the true story of biblical Exodus? Was Tutankhamun the Pharaoh of the Exodus? And did the conquest of Canaan, as described in the Old Testament, ever take place? The tomb of Tutankhamun was undoubtedly the greatest archaeological discovery of all time. What is not so well known is that among the wonderful treasures were rumoured to be papyri that held the 'true account' of the biblical Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. At a time when Arab hostility was erupting over Britain's support for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, archaeologist Howard Carter's threat to make the contents of the papyri known to the world could have caused chaos across the Middle East. The book is the outcome of extensive research undertaken by two authors determined to get to the truth of what has become Egypt's and archaeology's most baffling mystery. It forms the most comprehensive, detailed and accurate book ever written on the events surrounding the discovery of the tomb, and the relationship between the age of Tutankhamun and the origins of Israel. The conclusions are starting.
